Its not as funny as the previous two movies but still a pretty good film. Scrat has a companion. Ellie is expecting. Diego is not sure whether he should still hang around – he’s finding it difficult to catch gazelle’s and is hopelessly out of shape. Sid is feeling the need for a family. And that’s why, when he finds some giant eggs, he decides to keep them.

There is an interesting new character introduced as well. Buck, the English-accented, crocodile Dundee style, tough talking, free-wheeling, dinosaur-tracking creature. There are enough gags to keep the kids in splits. I don’t remember laughing out loud too often, while I remember having a stomach ache in the previous two versions from laughing too much.

There may even be a fourth but methinks I doth have seen my last one….
